here's another good tip, after you spent a lot of time cleanig your engine, go get a can of ARMOR ALL tire foam and blast the entire engine. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes (or whenever the foam tire shine becomes runny) and then wipe the entire motor down. ALL of your hoses and everything else under your bay that is dark will shine black. It looks sick

Don't use a pressure washer, the high pressure could break things under the hood. Use the chemicals the other guys suggested or some engine degreaser.
